Absolute risk from e-vapour products for users and bystanders
11:55 - 12:15
Safety and Health Effects
There is a lot of discussion about the application of the precautionary principle to ban use of e-cigarettes in closed public places. Passive exposure was one of the issues presented in the recent WHO report on e-cigarettes, to be discussed at COP-7, accompanied by a recommendation to prohibit by law the use of e-cigarettes in indoor spaces or at least where smoking is not permitted. This session will present current evidence on passive exposure and discuss whether it is justified to use the precautionary principle and apply restrictions to the use of e-cigarettes.
